Its the same old story. Higgs is always fifty steps ahead of the game, inventing new rules to play by, and different, more honest ways to see things.

apprentice advice

I was just reviewing some of the notes I took while I was apprenticing, and I came across this on the last page, and had to share.

A good apprentice:

- keeps its mouth shut as much as possible
- shows up on time or early, calls if it will be late or absent
- gets its projects and chores done in a timely manner
- draws and/or paints EVERY day
- notices things that need to be done and does them without being asked & without reward
- writes notes every day, certainly on every tattoo
- is humble and easygoing
- works hard
- doesn't gossip
- has king kong balls (or in my case, mountain lion balls)
- expects nothing and is therefore always pleasantly surprised and grateful
- doesn't take it personally
- keeps its eye on the prize

I'm sure I didn't live up to half of that, but it's good advice! [/b]
